RNC Launches with Tea Party’s Ted Cruz, Ann Romney and a "We Built It" Theme Shaped by Karl Rove
Wanye

Republicans have officially nominated Mitt Romney for president after nearly 15 months of campaigning. On Tuesday night, speakers, including Mitt Romney’s wife Ann, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, and tea party favorite Ted Cruz, addressed the Republican National Convention crowd of delegates and their supporters for several hours. Many referenced the theme of the evening, "We Built It," with testimonials about small business owners who have struggled under President Obama, and immigrant parents who pulled themselves up by their bootstraps. The theme played heavily in a $9 million ad by Karl Rove’s super PAC, American Crossroads, aired in battleground states this past July. We’re joined by Wayne Slater, senior political writer at the Dallas Morning News and co-author of three books, including "Bush’s Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential."

Mitt & Ann Romney Cast Aside "Moderate" Record on Abortion, Social Issues in Appeal to Extremist GOP


Mitt Romney’s embrace of the Republican Party’s call for a federal ban on abortion stands in stark contrast to his record as Massachusetts governor, one of his many shifting stances over the years in his bid for the party’s nomination. Romney’s wife, Ann Romney — the featured speaker at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night — has also shifted her public views. We discuss the move from "moderation" to extremism with someone who knew Ann and Mitt Romney well: former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson. Mitt Romney and Anderson worked together on the 2002 Olympics and later endorsed each other for their respective state bids. Anderson is now running for U.S. president on the Justice Party ticket. We’re also joined by Megan Carpentier, executive editor of the news site The Raw Story. [includes rush transcript]
Presidential Hopeful Rocky Anderson: Dems, GOP United in Stymying Third-Party Candidacies in U.S.


Former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is running for president with the newly formed Justice Party. Although hailing from a solidly red state, Anderson has been known as one of the most progressive mayors of any major U.S. city in recent years. During his two mayoral terms from 2000 to 2008, Anderson was an outspoken champion of LGBT rights, environmental sustainability and the antiwar movement in opposition to the Iraq War. But Anderson says his entry into the race has been hampered by the united Democratic-Republican opposition to third-party candidacies. "Without a doubt, these two parties, Republicans and Democrats, have a stranglehold on our democracy," Anderson says. "Getting on the ballot is a nightmare." [includes rush transcript]
